Delhi University started the online registration for the undergraduate courses in the evening of 15th May 2018 and after the 24 hours; more than 52,000 registrations have been made. At least 400 students have made payments and submitted their forms.
From this year, the administration has included tabs for both types, entrance based and merit-based, in the same portal to streamline the admission process. However, several students who wanted to opt for both merit and entrance-based courses ended up applying in just one and have requested the administration to cancel their applications.
“Many students had not read the information bulletin carefully and ended up applying for one, believing that a separate form would have to be filled with a fresh payment” Said by Officials.
On Wednesday till 4pm, 435 queries were received in which 11 remaining unanswered. In its attempt to improve grievance redressal, DU has, for the first time, added a special feature where every mail sent to the grievance mail ID ([email protected]) will generate an automatic response with the appropriate links to the admission page, the portal or the information bulletin. If any duplication entry found of any form then it will call for the cancellation of the application.
“Often students rush to fill up the form and miss out on minor details. At times they give incorrect information. They should go through the information bulletin and understand every step before starting the process,” said Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, Deputy Dean of Students Welfare (DSW).
